Bring Me Your Winter Solstice

You say the temperature’s falling
And icicles are painting the porch
Tickling snow on my sleeve
Such a pretty sight for a sad occasion
The birds are hiding for the winter
And I feel it coming down now
You’re drawing closer and closer

Solstice
Bring me your winter solstice
It may be the easiest way
To get over a heartbreak

I’ve come to know your snowflakes
As they sprinkle on the grass
I can watch the kids run by
While I close the window drapes
You said winter was your favorite
So I see why warmth is something
I’ve learned to dread over time

Solstice
Bring me your winter solstice
It may be the easiest way
To get over a heartbreak
Solstice
Sweet winter solstice
You’re coming around now
To stay forever

I will never need an umbrella
Since I’m so used to your cold
I will never need a coat now
I won’t need anything
Give me nothing
Nothing now

Don’t be afraid now
It’s a long month ahead
Don’t be afraid of me
I won’t be a pussy anymore

So bring me solstice
Bring me your winter solstice
It may be the easiest way
To get over a heartbreak
Solstice
Sweet winter solstice
You’re coming around now
To stay forever
